Issue/Introduction

Below are 2 of the current limitations in F5 monitor:

1. Unable to monitor multiple multiple servers using a single Infrastrucutre Agent instance

As per documentation:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/application-performance-management/10-7/implementing-agents/infrastructure-agent/f5-ltm-monitoring/configure-f5-ltm-monitoring.html

"The extension supports all F5 devices. This F5 LTM monitor is currently limited to one F5 per Infrastructure agent"

2. Enhance the F5 monitor to discover virtual hosts automatically

Below property is mandatory to configure the F5 monitor:

introscope.agent.f5.virtualServer.hosts={IP addresses of virtual servers created in F5 LTM instance}

In case the number of virtualServer.hosts IP addresses grows, you will need to manually update this property.
This tasks will be at some point not be accurate, so the monitor should discover all virtual host automatically.

Environment
